Text Box: Richard Mansfield

My love of ceramics began some years ago when I saw a Walter Keeler pot at an exhibition. It was love at first sight and I was inspired to join the pottery group at the Bevere Gallery in Worcestershire. Here I learnt to throw pots under the guiding hand of Dave Boddy, then Bevere’s resident potter.


I now work from Valley Farm Studio near Hartlebury. I love wood fired heroic pots and my main influences are the work of Nick Collins, Svend Bayer and Mark Hewitt.


I would describe my pots as “bold eclectic functional pots enthusiastically made on the potters wheel and experimentally fired”.
